12. I. 1919
Uyezd Executive Committee
Suzdal, Vladimir Gubernia
Copy to Gubernia Executive Committee
Check very strictly the behaviour of the anti-profiteer detachments and the Extraordinary Commission in Gavrilov Posad. Are receipts being issued for the requisitioned grain, are accounts properly kept, what is being done with the requisitioned grain? Telegraph fulfilment.
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
 This telegram was prompted by a telegram that Lenin received on January 12, 1919, at about 7 p.m., from four workers who complained that the Gavrilov Posad Extraordinary Commission had confiscated 16 poods of oats from them, and asked for orders to be given for their return.
